As 3D printing, aka additive manufacturing (AM), has evolved through advancements in technology and material development, its impact has expanded beyond prototyping and into production manufacturing. Unconstrained by traditional design-for-manufacture rules, 3D printing enables designers and engineers to envision detailed, complex geometries for next-generation parts. But when is it most cost-effective to utilize 3D printing for production parts, and how do you balance the price of parts with operational costs? 

Engineers have discovered that they can deliver their projects with a renewed confidence thanks to the customization, near-limitless design and faster lead times of AM in their back pocket. This webinar dives into the economics of 3D printing and what steps you should take to fully embrace the savings possible for production parts with this cutting-edge technology.  
In this webinar you will learn:

  • The long-term cost benefits of utilizing 3D printing 
  • Practical ways to save when ordering 3D printing services 
  • Details on the technologies and materials that best fit production manufacturing
